Steps to reproduce

The input event is not fired after calling execCommand on a content editable field.

Here is a jsbin which shows how the issue can be reproduced, together with a shim:,js,console,output

  1. Select text in the content editable field
  2. Click 'make bold’.

Expected outcome: “input event triggered” should appear in the console.

Actual outcome: It does not in MS Edge 14.

You can add a shim by clicking the ‘shim’ button.

Tested on: Windows 10 / MS Edge 14

Other browser behaviour: Chrome on Mac, Safari on Mac both fire the input event. Haven’t tested other browsers.
